The Adria Tour was cancelled midway after Novak Djokovic, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, Viktor Troicky and several others tested positive for Covid-19. Zverev, who was one of the few ones who didn’t get the virus, had offered an apology for being a part of the event.
“I deeply apologise to anyone that I have potentially put at risk by playing this tour,” the world No 7 had said in a statement. “I will proceed to follow the self-isolating guidelines advised by our doctors. As an added precaution my team and I will continue with regular testing.”
However, Zverev failed to live up to his promise of self-isolating and was seen partying with his friends in a crowded bar in the French Riviera.
Zverev received plenty of criticism on social media, with Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios leading the way.
